Manx Storms & Sunsets – Part 1

The Isle of Man is an island of contrasts & great beauty.

Here are photographs of a storm & subsequent sunset I experienced recently whilst visiting Port Erin in the south of the island.

As often happens here, the rain seemd to come from nowhere, taking many people by surprise.

Whilst the rain came down in torrents, Oyster Catchers could be seen at the water’s edge, foraging for food …

 Seagulls were never far away …

One family, caught on the beach in the heavy rain seemed unperturbed as they flew their kite …

Eventually the skies cleared, the storm passed & the day at Port Erin, ended in tranquil beauty as the sun sank below the horizon …

About waywood

Hi & Welcome to my thoughts. I share subjects that are important to me. As you’ll notice, these subjects can be quite broad & varied. I like variety; I like breadth & I like a challenge. I am passionate about helping others overcome their fears, grow in confidence & succeed. Although many people would label me as an achiever, I have battled low confidence, low self-esteem & a couple of nasty, long periods depression over the years. I can’t say, “I know how you feel” but I can hopefully empathise & offer some of the things that are helping me to turn my life around. Please feel free to comment, share & enjoy. Take care, best wishes & keep well Stuart
